With all of the pain and sadness that is going around the world, one can't help but ask, "where can I turn for peace?" With the pandemic coming to a close, but still political tensions all around the world, and wars and death occurring in the Middle-East, it's hard to find peace or reasons for peace. One great thing about the Gospel is that we can turn to Church leaders for such guidance.
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland posted on his Facebook saying:
"In spite of frightful prophecies and unsettling scriptures declaring that peace would be taken from the earth generally, our own beloved Russell M. Nelson has taught that does not mean it has to be taken from us individually!"
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).
“Keep your covenants and you will be safe. Break them and you will not.
The Book of Mormon is filled with stories of war, with the later chapters of Alma being considered "The War Chapters." The lessons that we learn in these chapters are many. The story of the Stripling Warriors come to mind as men who were faithful in the Gospel and went out to war. Because of the testimonies that their mother's help them forge within themselves, they were able to overcome the trials and tribulations of many battles and leave unscathed.
They exemplified the type of manhood that all of God’s sons and daughters should emulate and stood as a witness to the Nephite nation that God would deliver them if they were faithful.
Finally we must lean on our Savior Jesus Christ. The second verse of the song Where Can I Turn for Peace? truly exemplifies why we should look to Him in our times of fear and sorrow.
He, only One.
